ACAW is a hands-on research and development workshop for architects and facade engineers to explore the use of terra cotta in high-performance facade design.
Presented by Boston Valley Terra Cotta with CMU School of Architecture and the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning, the Architectural Ceramic Assemblies Workshop (ACAW) brings together professionals from the architectural industry and academia, offering participants the opportunity to explore innovative building solutions and further their understanding of architectural terra cotta for large-scale assemblies. Now in its eighth year, research and experimentation at past ACAWorkshops have culminated into real-world projects currently in development.
